Summer is nearly over (what?!) and soon enough the kids will be headed back to school.

To get them ready, the 1st Day Project has been collecting supplies to distribute. Today, the organization collected 20,000 items from 41 businesses in the Quad Cities. But they're not stopping there.

For those who want to help young Quad Citizens prepare, there are more supply drives on the way. 1st Day Project will be collecting school supplies on August 11 and 12 over at Wood Intermediate, located at  5701 N Division St.
